Evaluation of pesticides which pose carcinogenicity potential in animal testing. II. Consideration of human exposure conditions for regulatory decision making.


PMID 6084262

Abstract

In reaching a regulatory decision on the use of pesticides with carcinogenic potential, it is of great importance to investigate the extent of dermal exposure and absorption of a pesticide to users and field workers. By applying this information, along with the appropriate carcinogenicity categorization of a pesticide, a reasonably sound regulatory decision can be derived. Seven pesticides were selected, based on adequacy of tumor data, and were taken through the tumor evaluation system as reported in Part I 1984, Regul. Toxicol. Pharmacol. 4, 355-360). A step-by-step analysis on how a regulatory decision is reached on each pesticide by the EPA and CDFA was discussed.
